How To Open An Email Archive (pst file)
Archived email is saved in a file, commonly referred to as a “pst” or “email archive”. The following process will help you open the email archive in Outlook to view its contents.
- Click on File > Open > Outlook Data File
- In the Open Outlook Data File window, navigate to the folder containing the email archive file. Choose the file and click on OK.
- In the left hand column of Outlook, you will see a new entry in the list. The name is different based on how it was created, so look for Archives, Personal Folders, Archived Folders or Outlook Data File.
